Who loves ya, baby?
Scenes, lines, images, sounds which stuck with you for whatever reason, which rendered the film worthwhile or which opened a door on their own.
I've seen them but somehow never seen In The Mood For Love. I watched this thing called Kaili Blues recently, it's kinda like Wong Kar-Wai now I come to think of it although I liked it a lot moreI've never seen a Wong Kar-wai film. I've been meaning to watch Fallen Angels and Chungking Express for years but just never have.
The other guy who gets shot is Fassbinder himself (starred, directed and I think even wrote - but not performed - the music).I think I mentioned before but one of my favourite ever scenes is the ending of the American Soldier when there is a shoot out and th6en the guy who has an unrequited homosexual crush his older brother kinda flops around with the body in slow motion as this sub Doors crooning fills the ears. Must have influenced Lynch.
It's a John Carpenter film from '87.What's Prince of Darkness?
I think the mayor in Jaws was the first time I really hated and understood how awful a politician can be.A great thread idea. The ones that shaped me most as a kid were possibly the "Did you see that?" shot from Jaws where you see the shark attack only in the background, presaging a lifetime's interest in horror films that don't necessarily present as such, in camouflage, and the Quint/Hooper/Brody three header onboard ship, presaging a lifetime's interest in weird talky films.
